                                      SPY REPORT

     The sages err'd not in their foretelling of a god descending upon TRICORUS, for 
I, Novgorodny Vir, have returned!  VAN DUEL?  Who?  DARK HORSEMEN is the top team 
these days, buddies!  DARK HORSEMEN had cause to celebrate, after KLARALLA got 10 
points by beating TERRI NUNN.  A certain someone should cut down on the drinking and 
practice more, after losing 8 points to KLARALLA.  (Discrete enough, TERRI NUNN?) A 
certain someone saw ICE CREAM MAN at The Blue Dolphin Inn with the shakes, and now he 
fails to show up to defend his throne.  What a pathetic slob!  What can be a greater 
victory?  KLARALLA has taken hers place as the top, as TRICORUS' new Duelmaster.  
Word has it one team in TRICORUS is using psychics to predict wins.  They lead a 
charmed life!   
     So much to report, so little time!  Like the noble eagle soaring amongst the 
mountaintops, so stand the warriors of VAN DUEL, alone and unchallenged.  Like a pup 
with its tail between its legs, CHUCK'S PINUPS scurried away from VAN DUEL.  Oh, the 
shame!  Everyone is famous for fifteen minutes, and KLARALLA is it right now.  Most 
challenged warrior.  Isn't DARK HORSEMEN proud!   
     The moving sword slashes, and having slashed, moves on...  Those who owe BAIT 4 
of DECEIVERS money and had written it off, take note:  it'S BACK FROM THE DARK 
ARENA!!!  AND it'S MAD!!!  Ask not for whom the sword slashes; it slashes for thee.   
     Do not think spyreporting in TRICORUS is the highlight of my life.  More 
important duties call me.  Can anything compare to the pleasure of writing Spyreports 
for TRICORUS?  On that giddy note I take my leave-- Novgorodny Vir

Three-two, but only one standby.  This looks better.  This looks more like real
dueling.  Well, real arena dueling.  Real dueling in what you might call a state of
nature is... different.  Fewer rules, and they're more fluid. -- Garsteil
